A Student at TAW

Hello there, people. I am a Character Animation student at The Animation Workshop.

After finishing school I went to The Drawing Academy to gain knowledge of/and skills in classical drawing techniques. I then applied for the The Animation Workshop for the second time and struck gold! This blog sums up what I've done and is doing now, both in school and for personal fun...

Flash Introduction (Dialogue)

First animation in Flash... Good for tweening effect and for lazy animation that doesn't involve actual drawing... For classical character animation... it is the most unintuitive tool I've ever come across. It makes me miss TVPaint. However, I had fun with this particular excercise...

We had to make our own character and lipsync to a soundclip. It had to involve some acting of the hands. Basically we we're told to go nuts with the various tweening tools. This was mostly done using Classic Tween, but after dailies I have now thrown in a bit of Motion Tween as well. Also, we didn't learn how to control easing in/out in tweening until afterwards, but I threw it in where I could, without messing up the parented symbol-motions.... :S

Dialogue is from 'Deadwood', I think...
